Ergonomics

Introduction

In order to remain innovative and productive as a company, an ideally designed working environment is essential. Ergonomics are an essential aspect: in designing workstations and their environment and evaluating furniture and the design of work systems. AEH experts will gladly advise you on how to bring your working environment up-to-date. AEH ergonomists are certified as Eur.Erg. by CREE.

Workstation

The most important criteria for workstation design are the individual’s build, adapted parameters such as working and seat height, angle and distance of vision.
1. Ergonomics analysis

AEH analyses the musculoskeletal stresses at work and the fulfilment of legal requirements with suitable and time-tested processes.

2. Interventions concerning ergonomics and VD work
3. Evaluation of furniture and work tools

Work environment

The work environment is also relevant for the performance, well-being, satisfaction and motivation of staff. Climate, air quality, light, noise and vibrations are important factors.

1. Lighting

The lighting situation influences your safety and comfort at your workstation. AEH supports you with the analysis and design.

2. Acoustic environment
3. Room climate
4. Air quality
5. Electromagnetic fields

Work organisation and contents

Strong or unilateral stresses are avoided thanks to thoughtful work processes, while improving the concentration and performance of staff. The key areas are work processes, working time and break regulation, variety of tasks, latitude for action-taking and decision-making and general collaboration.

Staff should also be able to contribute their capabilities to their work. Both excessive and too few demands prevent satisfaction, burden health and should thus be avoided as far as possible. AEH corporate health experts will gladly advise you.

Product design - products and working equipment

When products or working equipment (tools, devices, furniture) are designed ergonomically, the product is adapted to the needs and abilities of the user, so that simple use and the best possible comfort is achieved.

Best Practice: Bed systems

AEH advises Bico, amongst others, as well as the entire Hilding Anders group - one of the leading bed and mattress manufacturers in Europe, in the development of sleeping systems. The relevant dimensions for high quality sleep were developed together, as well as the SleepLab test and development centre.

AEH Zertifikat

The AEH corporate health experts verify and audit the test procedure and award it and other high quality product the “AEH+ swiss approved” quality label. We are always available to provide additional information.
